Abstract [en]

This aim of this thesis is to investigate the impact of national prostitution legislation as well

as national policy and law enforcement efforts on the prevalence of the transnational issue

of trafficking for sexual exploitation. Sweden, Germany and Denmark have been selected for

a comparative case study based on their similarity including geographical proximity and

commitment to combating trafficking and their difference in prostitution legislation with

Sweden criminalizing the purchase of sex, Germany legalizing and regulating prostitution

and Denmark applying decriminalization. The legislations on prostitution are linked to

opposing feminist theories on prostitution and sex trafficking, radical and liberal, and the

assumptions of these theories regarding the impact on the prevalence of sex trafficking are

tested. The findings support the assumptions of radical feminist theory which claims that

criminalization of the purchase of sex leads to a decreased prostitution and sex trafficking

market whereas legalization or decriminalization increases the occurrence of both. The

results show that law enforcement efforts also have an impact but that this effect is not as

significant. The case studies also provide valuable insights about the strengths and

weaknesses of different law enforcement measures which can further assist in combating

this issue.
